Ramayan replicated its success from late ‘80s and ‘90s, and perhaps even outdid that with its performance on its return to Indian TV. The serial shattered records galore, starting by taking the highest premier ratings in five years, and then leaving all shows behind to become the most-watched show on TV once again. However, the record that really left the citizens mesmerised has been that it has now also gone on to become the most-watched show across the world, even beating Game of Thrones.
